List of the top rated players in NBA 2K7

NBA 2K7 is probably the most addictive Xbox games I've played in a long while. Compared to NBA Live 2007, NBA 2K7 is worlds apart in terms of realism and feel. Controls take a bit to get used to and don't have the 'arcade' style feel of NBA Live 2007. I like to start with a rubbish team and then trade up. I like a challenge. One thing that bugged me was that without a good knowledge of real world stats, it can take a while to figure out who are the best shooters etc. without going through each players profile.

So what I've done is grab a list of the ratings for each player in the game (besides the free agent list) and sorted them to show the top players in each of my key categories. Firstly, I've got the best rated players by position, then I've got the list of the best rated players for three of the categories I think are most important if you want to dominate, 3 point shooting, dunking and offensive rebounding (clearly I'm not big on defence). Basically if you can stack your team with a few of the guys in these lists, then you wont have too much trouble taking out the championship. Without further or do, here are the lists.

  1. Haha… actually I do have a much larger excel spreadsheet, just didn’t think anyone would want anymore than the top 5 or so.
